How does all of this affect small landowners in Louisiana?

Coastal wetland forest owners are sadly losing their trees. Logging advocates promote clear-cutting for mulch as a sustainable practice despite the fact that it flies in the face of all documented science, and small landowners who follow their advice could lose their forests forever.  The Save Our Cypress Coalition supports efforts to compensate landowners for leaving the land in trees, such as conservation easements, voluntary state buyout programs, and eco-tourism opportunities.
